budget crises of their own leading to angry protests about the future role of unions in america. and throughout the world uprisings in north africa and the middle east sending oil prices surging. stephen moore joins me now. one issue at a time. >> okay. >> when these protests in state capitols subside, will unions, which have been weakened over the last 30 years in america, will they come out stronger or weaker? >> well, i don't view this as an assault against the unions but i do think this is a really important fight for the future of finances of state and local governments across the country. one of the things i try to tell viewers is this isn't just about wisconsin. what's happening in madison. this is about what is likely to happen in many, many states if they don't get their public pensions and their public health care under control. and so i think the stakes are really high here, ali. i think in the end that these legislate tours are going to do the right thing. >> sorry, do the right thing, do the right thing, you mean go ahead with these plans that some people call union

a low point, families in america lost a quarter of their wealth. the result of the recession and result of an overheated housing market. how long can he afford to be engaged in anything else other than economic problems? whenever i tweet anything out about the president and libya or the middle east i get responses from people saying what's he doing about unemployment at home? >> he's probably got two hours to get focused on the united states. the reality is we know most americans are focused on understandably domestic issues, their jobs, their houses. while they can get excited for an hour about a war abroad, about taking down a dictator, in the long-term, what they really care about is their own jobs. so i think this is going to be a very real problem for him. many presidents, when they're in trouble, like the distractions of foreign policy because it takes them away from the domestic problems that give them trouble. but in this case this president's got to deal on the ground with domestic issues, and i fear that the libyan crisis, aside from other problems we can talk about in libya i

is an writer for "the wall street journal." this president watched up his trip to latden america with his attention focused on the rest of the world. what does it do for his ability to lead in the united states on vital issues that remain domestically? job creation, the budget, the deficit? >> one of the interesting things about history is that presidents come into office concentrating on domestic issues. so many times get involved in military conflicts. inme it was true of woodrow wilson and franklin roosevelt and lyndon johnson who was trying to do the great society and we had the vietnam war. so the president i think is somewhat distracted. but he can't be too distracted, because it's very clear to me that to voters, what matters most is not what's happening in libya or what's happening in iraq or what's happening in rio, but what's happening at home. they want jobs. and of course, don't forget, ali, two weeks from now we're going to be talking about a potential government shutdown to deal with the budget crisis. >> i want to bring in benjamin barber who is the author of "jihad versus

1973. as you may know, french planes are already in the skies above benghazi. now, america has unique capabilities, and we will bring them to bear to help our european and canadian allies and arab partners stop further violence against civilians. >> about 20 french fighter jets are now patrolling the skies over libya. >> and now we're getting reports they're firing, as we just mentioned a few minutes ago, on targets, military vehicles belonging to forces loyal to moammar gadhafi in order to protect libyan civilians. jim bitterman i believe is in paris with us. jim, we have a few more -- no, it's nic robertson in libya's capital tripoli. >> there we go. >> well, we have both, which is good, because we need both. jim bitterman, while we have you here, i understand we have details on what planes are being used right now over libya, what french fighter jets are being used in this operation. >> reporter: that's right, hala, we've been listening to a briefing at the defense ministry. a couple of things to report, there has been an engagement a half hour ago in which french shot at a libyan

on the spending and cuts. >> we're not going to balance america's budget in the next six months. we should be taking care that we don't do things that damage our economy and really slow down our recovery. the notion as the president said, of cutting hundreds of thousands of children off head start at this moment, cutting pell grants for college students, so that they would have to drop out of school, delaying or stopping research in energy when we see gas prices going through the roof, suspending medical research for six or seven months -- listen, that goes way too far and it goes in a direction not good for this country. >> every other household had to balance and tighten their belt. american government should as well. this is less than 3%. less than 3%. these are the same economists who said the stimulus would create jobs. america today, the corporations have more cash on hand than they've had in the last 50 years. uncertainty is holding back investment. so, when you look at the republican budget, not only whil we tackle the debt, but we'll tackle job creation, prosperity and liberty. >>
